Katt Williams was detained by police in front of a Subway restaurant in West Hollywood Thursday night after cops suspected the comic was involved in some sort of “disturbance” at the restaurant, TMZ has learned …?  but Katt says he did nothing wrong.

Katt tells TMZ … the drama began while he was waiting in front of the Subway while his friend/tour manager Suge Knight was getting a manicure/pedicure at a nearby nail salon.

While he was waiting for Suge, cops arrived to the Subway and confronted Katt.

Cops tell TMZ … they responded to a call about a disturbance involving the comic.

Katt was handcuffed and placed in the back of a squad car … where he was smiling … and even gave a thumbs up to a TMZ photog.

Eventually, Katt was released from custody and allowed to leave the scene.

Katt tells TMZ … cops initially took some weed he was carrying at the time … and a gun … but eventually gave back both items because he had a medical marijuana card and a permit for the weapon.

However cops tell us … there was no firearm … and the only thing they found was an empty magazine for a .45 caliber gun.

Katt also says the incident was racially motivated.

Katt tells TMZ he wants to sue over the incident … and is already thinking about contacting Gloria Allred … it’s unclear if he was joking.

After Katt had been released from custody, one Subway employee brought sandwiches for Katt and Suge. The Subway employee tells TMZ … he never saw Katt involved in any sort of physical altercation.

It’s only been 13 days since Katt’s last arrest — he was busted outside of Sacramento on Dec. 7 on a felony warrant related to a police chase.

Besides the arrests, Katt has a TON of other legal issues he’s dealing with these days … including the fallout from a bar fight in which he allegedly threw a rock at a car, a lawsuit over a bizarre onstage meltdown, and of course … slapping a Target employee in the face.

Katt Williams — I Slapped Target Employee … For Calling Me the N-Word

Katt Williams
I Slapped Target Employee
For Calling Me the N-Word

EXCLUSIVE

121912_katt_williams_launch
Katt Williams claims the reason he pimp-slapped a Target employee in the face last month is because the guy? called him the n-word … and TMZ has video of Katt’s explanation.

Katt was performing last night at the Comedy Store in Hollywood when he described what went down immediately before the November 25th attack in Sacramento — telling the audience,? ”This is what the dude at Target said … ‘Your assistant is already suing you, you p**sy ass n***er.”

The jab is a reference to this lawsuit? – in which Katt’s former assistant is suing him for $5 million, claiming the comic punched her.

Katt said he flipped when he heard the slur and asked the employee, “Did you just say the n-word in front of Katt Williams?” — to which the employee answered, “You say it all the time.”? 

Katt says he shot back, “Say it again and see what happens” — and that’s when he knocked the guy upside the head.

Katt then compared his racism plight to that of? Dave Chappelle, explaining,? ”That’s the same sh*t that drove [Chappelle] out of the f***ing business.”

Katt seems to be alluding to Chappelle’s claim that he quit his Comedy Central show and went into seclusion over an argument with producers about a sketch that he believed was racist.

As we reported, the Target employee — a guy named Forrest Liebenbergwas fired from his job shortly after the incident. Target wouldn’t explain why. Multiple calls to Liebenberg weren’t returned.

Justin Bieber — Accused of ANIMAL CRUELTY … by Hamster Org.

Justin Bieber
Accused of Animal Cruelty
… By Hamster Org.

EXCLUSIVE

1219_beiber_hamster_getty
Justin Bieber issued a DEATH SENTENCE to his pet hamster PAC when he gave it away to a screaming fan (who promised to love and cherish it forever) outside of a concert earlier this month … this according to the California Hamster Association (yes, there’s actually a California Hamster Association).

TMZ spoke to a rep for the group … who tells us Bieber committed an act of “animal cruelty” when he gifted away the animal … even if his intentions were good.

The CHA tells us … hamsters are fragile creatures that “often succumb quickly to illness and death,” especially when faced with “sudden environmental change.”

In short … “The moment that hamster was handed off to a screaming girl in a harsh, frenzied environment was likely the moment it gazed at the short path to its doom.”

DOOM!!!!!!

So what should Bieber have done instead? The CHA says if Justin no longer wanted the pet, he could have left it in the care of an animal shelter or rescue center … so they could’ve handed it off to a responsible new owner in a safer manner.

As for PAC, he’s currently alive and well in the care of Bieber’s 18-year-old super-fan Tori … who has vowed to treat the animal like a tiny rodent god.

So far, no comment for Bieber.

Reese Witherspoon’s Beverly Hills Beauty Stop

Posted Wednesday December 19, 2012 8:36 PM GMT

Heading to the dermatologist to keep her skin flawless, Reese Witherspoon went to Ava MD in Beverly Hills on Wednesday (December 19).

The “Legally Blonde” star looked cute in a dark blue dress, black cardigan, and black nylons as she gave the pesky photographers annoyed looks.

Reese is used to dominating the big screen herself, but she’s more than happy to support a fellow actress who outshines all others. She recently reached out to Naomi Watts to praise her performance in the disaster flick, “The Impossible.”

In a fan letter written by Witherspoon, the affirmation said, “If I have anything to do with it (and I will literally tap dance on Sunset Boulevard for you!), you will be holding every beautiful statue that exists by the end of February.”

Mark Sanchez death threats catch NFL’s attention

Because there are horrible people in the world, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez received death threats from a Twitter user following a poor performance against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday the league is aware of the threats and that NFL security has followed up with Jets to assist. Aiello told NFL.com this is standard procedure in cases such as this.

Sanchez has faced a mountain of criticism as he’s struggled through a difficult season. The Jets announced Tuesday that Greg McElroy would start in Sanchez’s place on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.

Sanchez threw four interceptions in a 14-10 loss to the Titans that eliminated the Jets from postseason contention. He has 50 turnovers since the start of the 2011 season, more than any player in the NFL.

Of course, that doesn’t mean his physical well-being should be threatened because of it. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

The ’60s-inspired shoot includes group members Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson in a variety of costumes, such as ski outfits, prison jumpsuits, and, of course, shirtless in swim trunks.

Though the video won’t be released until 2013, the UK boy band has already had quite a year to brag about. They racked up two No. 1 albums in the U.S., sold out Madison Square Garden, and performed at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.

You can catch the full video for “Kiss You” on January 7th, but check out the sneak peek below.

Calvin Pace: Jets plagued by mistakes all season

The New York Jets’ defensive players don’t have a whole lot of faith in the offense. Why would they? The Jets lost 14-10 to the Tennessee Titans on “Monday Night Football” as they turned the ball over five times, including four interceptions and a game-ending fumble by quarterback Mark Sanchez.

“Story of our season. Shooting yourself in the foot, over and over and over again,” linebacker Calvin Pace told the New York Daily News. “I don’t care who you’re playing, you can’t beat anybody if you turn the ball over five times.”

Like a good teammate, Pace acknowledged the defense had its issues, too. But 14 points is six below the Titans season average. Teams are supposed to win when they hold opponents to 14 points. Pace also admitted he was frustrated.

Monday was the sixth time the Jets have been held to 10 points or fewer in 2012. Safety LaRon Landry was asked if he believed the offense would take advantage when the Jets got the ball back late on the Titan 25-yard line. Sanchez fumbled the ball away to end the rally opportunity.

“I play defense,” Landry said. “My mindset on the sidelines? I hope they want to capitalize. I hope they want to win.”

That was not an, “I know they want to capitalize. I know they want to win.”

The Jets officially have imploded and been eliminated from the playoffs. Coach Rex Ryan and Sanchez deservedly are catching all kinds of heat.

The end can’t come soon enough for Gang Green. Just 120 minutes left.
